I am a Google Certified international educator with experience in early literacy, mother tongue issues and multilingual education. I spent most of my adult life overseas. At first, overseas meant anywhere that was not Poland, where I was born. Now, the definition is blurry. I have taught in international primary schools in Hungary, Uganda, Kenya and Republic of the Congo.
I believe in continuous professional and personal development and in the power of dialogue, no matter how difficult. I believe as international educators we have an obligation to make connections to host culture and the cultures of each student in our class. I believe every child can thrive in a truly supportive, yet challenging environment where they feel the teacher is invested in them and their success.
